Costs will vary tremendously based on location, type of anesthesia employed, surgical facility, and procedures to be performed. I would recommend seeing a series of providers in the WI region to get the best estimate. Most patients who have both arms done can return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery. Hope this helps.

I am located in Waukesha. In my office this would be just under $7000. This includes the surgeon's fee, hospital, and anesthesia. There are several different types of brachioplasty. I would have to examine you to determine which would be best for you. You can call Suzanne and Teresa in the office at 262-523-1200 to set up an appointment. Cosmetic consults are $100, but this will apply toward your surgery.

Thanks for your question and doing your homework with ASPS member surgeons. Brachioplasty is a wonderful body contouring procedure and the costs will vary considerably by geographic area. In general, total cost including anesthesia, surgeon's fees, and facility costs will run between $7000 - $10,000 depending on the complexity of the procedure. Recovery is fairly predictable and most patients return to work by two weeks and may take a bit longer to return to more vigorous exercise or athletic activities.

A brachiopasty costs are about 5-9000 and the downtime is about 1-2 weeks though healing does take longer than that.
